Peggy, that is a fabulous bike. Love the color. I looked at the ones in Toys-R-Us yesterday. Purple and has a helmet. I didn’t buy it as I have no where to store it in the mess we are living in. I will get it once life is back to normal.
Peggy, that is a great bike. I love it. It looks totally real being metal. The ones in the UK are all plastic. I have looked for a metal one but I would have to pay postage from the US which appears to be between £25 and £50… I shall just have to enjoy yours!!
Here’s Lotte with the Our Generation “Anywhere You Cruise” bicycle from Target. It’s primarily metal, with a plastic seat and basket, ribbon streamers and fabric flowers on the basket and rubber tires and handles. It has training wheels (which I will remove when the dolls learn to ride) but does not come with a helmet. It has a nonworking bell, for looks only. (Presumably the dolls won’t be moving fast enough to need to use the bell.) When the helmets arrive, I will get some outside photos.
I have also acquired a used American Girl bicycle from 2002. It was damaged in shipment, but I think it can be used with some fixing. It originally had hand brakes. When I bought it, it had one handbrake, and that was what broke off. It’s mostly metal, too. It has a stand instead of training wheels. I don’t think it’s any better made than the OG bicycle, in spite of being more expensive used than the OG bicycle new.
